Yesterday it came out, thanks to newly released emails from Hillary Clinton's private server, that she had basically sold her her influence as Secretary of State to yet another billionaire, Gilbert Chagoury, in return for contributions to the Clinton Foundation.
This is basically treasonous, and its not hard to imagine that in any administration other than Obama's, she would be prosecuted for such, or, at the very least, for corruption.
The New York Times chose to bury this story on page A10.
Meanwhile, the two uppermost right hand columns on the front page were both about Donald Trump. The one the left was headlined, G.O.P. women Are Retreating From Nominee. (The online version has a different headline.) The gist of it was that Republican women are deserting Trump in droves, because of his provocative remarks. The Times quoted a couple women willing to make disparaging comments about Trump.
The righthand column read, Trump Suggests Gun Owners Act Against Clinton. At a rally in North Carolina, Trump had said, "If [Hillary] gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks." He then added, "Although the Second Amendment people -- maybe there is, I don't know." He obviously wasn't seriously suggesting that someone go out and assassinate Hillary Clinton; his comment was about politicking. But the Times chose to take him literally and basically said that was what he meant.
Hillary Clinton is shown to have sold her office to the highest bidder, and the Gray Lady decides that's not worthy of front page coverage. But Donald Trump makes a vaguely worded statement, and it is.
That's why they call it The New York Times.
